Is it starting to feel like everyone’s getting married or is it just me?
Well, since the wedding bells aren’t ringing for me anytime soon, I thought I would at least help my newlywed friends out with a few destination spots for their honeymoon.
With that, JUICE has compiled a few spots that will definitely excite all you romantic lovers out there.
Without further ado, here they are… Also, you might want to play some sexy saxophone music while you read, just so you can imagine yourself there.
1. Ambong-Ambong Langkawi Rainforest, Kedah
There’s nothing more romantic than a secluded forest villa just for the two of you.
Located amidst lush greenery and only a 5-minute walk away from the beautiful Pantai Tengah beach, this gorgeous spot is definitely a great choice for you and your partner.
Perfect for lovers of adventure and strenuous activities outside of the bedroom (wink wink), guests can go diving, fishing, hiking, wind surfing and even gardening!
But don’t worry, if you’re just there to relax, the hot tubs, spas and swimming pools will surely kickstart a hopefully stress-free marriage… fingers crossed.
Ambong even has an award winning Unkaizan Japanese restaurant that’s halal. If you’re not into that, BBQ is available as well. That’ll be a great test to see if you married a good cook!

2. MaliHom Private Estate, Penang
I’m sorry but I don’t think there’s anything more beautiful than a well-kept forest. Just picture yourselves as Tarzan and Jane swinging from one vine to another. How is that not romantic?
This gorgeous getaway received exceptional reviews for its friendly staff, delicious food and obviously, its out-of-this-world location.
The perfect place to feel the serene mountain breeze as you take a dip in the pool that overlooks an expansive forest, you and your loved one will surely get the full honeymoon experience with this location.
However, while the view is absolutely stunning and you have a fantastic restaurant to dine at, if you’re still looking to explore outside of your hotel, that might be a bit difficult.
The resort is located on a steep hill and most guests recommend you getting your essentials before check-in since you’ll have to rely on the hotel’s transportation to travel.
Other than that, MaliHom is heaven on Earth. Check it out here.
3. Gaya Island Resort, Sabah
This private island is perfect for couples who prioritise seclusion and sandy beaches. With only a limited amount of people on the island yet bountiful fun activities for the daytime and the nighttime, guests will have ample space and privacy to enjoy their honeymoon.
The obvious winners for Gaya Island Resort is definitely its crystal clear blue water and scenic routes which makes you feel like you’re actually overseas in The Maldives.
So, for those travel bugs who long for a vacation far away from home, I think you’ve found your pick.
Guests compliment the hotel’s staff for their friendliness as well as the 3 restaurants for being diverse yet equally delicious. For those who are picky eaters, don’t worry, for the restaurants actually cater to your dietary needs and tastes.

4. Villa Samadhi, Kuala Lumpur
Are you a bougie babe/boy? Then the Villa Samadhi is the perfect getaway spot for you.
Located in the upscale areas of Kuala Lumpur where you might see some T20 people hanging out, these rustic looking cabanas that are interconnected to a luxurious pool offer a change of scenery from the bustling capital.
If you and your partner are lovers of luxury hotels that still feel very personal and quaint, Villa Samadhi has that in spades.
The fan favourite amenity at this hotel is definitely the temperature-regulated jacuzzi that invites some sexy saxophone music, scented candles and bubbly.
But of course, similar to other hotels mentioned, the food is top notch.

5. Mangala Resort, Pahang
Take a dip then lounge at a cosy gazebo at this secluded and lusciously green honeymoon spot in Kuantan.
From the pictures alone, the colour palette in itself is soothing and we’re not even there yet.
Just imagine yourself feeling the cool breeze, breathing in abundantly fresh air, and sipping hot tea after a swim. Then imagine yourself doing all that with someone you have decided to spend the rest of your life with… Heaven on Earth!
If this drone shot doesn’t sell you on the magnificence of the place, I don’t know what will.
Surrounded by a massive lake, forest and private chalets, you’re guaranteed an unbothered and idyllic stay.
Despite its super close connection to nature, you can still enjoy technology in the form of their game room. So, it’s the best of both worlds, really.

Just take a look at that wide beach, foamy ocean water, and soft sand then tell me you wouldn’t book a room right now even if you’re not getting married.
Tanjung Jara is well-known for being the destination spot for newlyweds due to their priority on privacy and romance. With various small, secluded areas to chill at with your bae scattered across the resort, you’ll never be bothered again.
